Skydive Atlanta is certified by the U.S. Department of Defense, as they are the training home for the Silver Wings, a U.S. Army parachute team. Here's what that means for civilians thinking of taking the plunge: this skydiving outfit is routinely inspected by the Department of Defense, and equips its divers with state of the art equipment such as the "T-Strap", a harness that adds yet another level of safety to the operation. For more than 28 years, the team here has been curating safe and exciting airborne plunges, including tandem skydives led by certified pilots and instructors. After a class led by a USPA-certified instructor, divers take to the skies and leap while strapped to a professional, free-falling at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour before opening the parachute and floating gracefully to the ground or nearest pile of pillows.

Skydive Atlanta also offers DVD and photo options that commemorate skydivers' daring journey through the air.

Ranked in Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play in Indiana, the course at Prairie View Golf Club is situated on 206 acres of environmentally protected land along the White River with scenic prairieland and five lakes. The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design features natural wetlands with a rushing stream that comes into play on four holes, forcing players to demonstrate deft control or gilled golf bags. On the front nine, the prairie setting invites harsh winds to blow across bentgrass fairways, often knocking shots off course. As players make the turn onto the back nine, they notice a marked difference in the environment, as open prairies give way to tall sycamore, oak, beech, and cottonwood trees lying just beyond the Kentucky bluegrass rough. Across the river lies Conner Prairie, a historical re-enactment village whose elegant, 1830s-era style was adopted for the design of the course's 15,000-square-foot clubhouse.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 7,073 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 74.5 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 138 from the back tees
